STB is the New CPR

Nearly 60,000 people die from bleeding each year, and though injuries that result in extreme blood loss have long been a sight all too common in areas like West Philadelphia, the national spotlight has certainly shone upon the issue of late. These days it seems everyone has a dog in the fight; as politicos battle over gun control legislation, teens march in the streets advocating for improved school safety measures, and debates wear on across the dinner table, trauma experts at the national, state, and local levels are taking cues from decades-long CPR awareness campaigns to improve public education and training in life-saving bleeding control (B-Con) techniques.

Expect the Unexpected During In-Flight Medical Emergencies

Every day, about 165 in-flight emergencies occur on the 100,000 or so airplanes that take to the skies around the world, according to the most recent estimates. But, there are currently no federal guidelines for physicians in these situations, and there is no mandatory reporting system that tracks in-flight emergencies. After being the only physician on board during two in-flight emergencies, Rachel Zang, MD, an Emergency Medicine resident at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, learned as much as she could about the laws and what exactly is in on-board medical kits. Today she imparts that knowledge to other physicians.

In response to repeated calls for an integrated emergency care system in the U.S., the University of Pittsburgh rose to the challenge and divided the nation into hundreds of referral regions that describe how patients access advanced care, in a way that respects geopolitical borders.
